The planning department have confirmed that the new – and now operational – Buongiorno cafe and restaurant on Acomb Wood Drive has the necessary planning permission. The was confusion in November when a “change of use” planning application was withdrawn.
It turns out that the Council advised the owner that a “change of use” planning permission was not necessary as the existing take away permission also covered the use of the premises as a cafe.
“Change of use” would only be required if there were proposed alterations to the shop front, display of advertisements, or the installation of any external flues.
We wish the new business every success.
Buongiorno have apparently withdrawn their planning application to turn unit 3 at the Acomb Wood Drive shopping centre into a coffee shop and restaurant.
Work had already started on fitting out the unit.
No reason has been given for the change of heart.
The Buongiorno restaurant at unit 3a at the Acomb Wood Drive has applied for a license to supply alcohol. The application is for sales on all days of the week.
